What kind of difference can a day make? Well, starting in T-minus 2.5 hours in my timezone (8 pm EST, 7 pm CST), Al Gore and Friends are going to show you.
September 14th, 7 pm CST, marks the start of a 24 hour time period brought to you by the Climate Reality Project. Check out the Video Below!
The plan? 24 hours 24 presenters. 24 Time Zones. 13 Languages. One Message: bringing awareness about Climate Change. Reporting from Beijing, Boulder, Canberra, Cape Verde, Dubai, Durban, French Polynesia, Hawaii, Husavik, Ilulissat, Islamabad, Istanbul, Jakarta, Kotzebue, London, Mexico City, New Delhi, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Victoria.
In that 24 hours of Reality, all types of presentations about and from people living with the reality of climate change will address our extreme weather as of late. With this message live streaming at http://climaterealityproject.org/, you'll be able to check it out and multiply your awareness of global issues as related to climate change.
Not in the mood to stay up? Odds are, that's probably okay, as the presentations will invariably make their way to recorded podcasts for later events.
I'm sure, given the creators, it will be chock-filled with dynamic facts and images! Take time to get a hefty dose of reality.
